"As a plain black line seeks its purpose in life, puns provide possible answers in this picture book. Friends and relations offer suggestions in reply to Line's repeated question, 'What's a line supposed to do?' Line decides to 'broaden his horizon, ' traveling in every cardinal direction until finally discovering that he should make his 'own mark.' Mixed-media collages form Line's buddies, and patterned cut-outs come together in cheery scenes of Line's travels." --Publishers Weekly
